    And then people started saying a firearm on premises no matter what is illegal. I proved my point.

    Oh, just yesterday I mailed another handgun using the USPS.

    But again, explain to me why it's legal to bring a firearm to the post office to mail but it's illegal to bring the same onto the property in the first place.

    This kind of stuff is exactly why crap like this gets perpetuated around the gun forum world.
    Please see the Code Of Federal Regulations CFR 232.1 - conduct on Postal Property.

    (a) Applicability. This section applies to all real property under the charge and control of the Postal Service, to all tenant agencies, and to all persons entering in or on such property.

    (l) Weapons and explosives. No person while on postal property may carry firearms, other dangerous or deadly weapons, or explosives, either openly or concealed, or store the same on postal property, except for official purposes.

    39 CFR 232.1 - Conduct on postal property. - Code of Federal Regulations - Title 39: Postal Service - Part 232: Conduct on postal property - Id 19777182 - vLex

    The reason you can mail guns at the Post Office is that is one of the "official purposes" listed in the regulation.

    Yeah, I read them already.

    Exactly what I've been saying this whole time and many times over the years when this comes up. Yet people still tell me it's illegal.

    I would have asked him if he is Law Enforcement, and if he said no, I would have arrested him.

    That's just outright dumb. Carrying a weapon means there are responsibilities of knowing the law properly.
